ABOUT PORT CROSSFIT

We Want You to Be the Healthiest You Have Ever Been For Life

Port Cross Fit is a World-Class Fitness Facility

What sets us apart from other gyms and CrossFit Affiliates in our area is that we focus on making sure that you are fully prepared and ready for our group classes. We are focused on lifelong functional fitness for our athletes…not just throwing you into a class environment without a knowledge of the movements and proper technique. Our group classes are for our members that have obtained a proficiency in functional movements and a good baseline of fitness.

We have spent many years studying, learning and experimenting with ways to get people fit in a safe and effective manner. We have learned how to get people motivated and to keep them injury-free so they can be fit for life not just for a quick fix.
We strongly believe in the research that Greg Glassman, the founder of CrossFit, shared with the fitness community several years back in the CrossFit Journal article “What is Fitness?”. He prescribed a formula of constantly varied, functional movements, at high intensity. We follow this formula that has been proven across high level professional athletes and those seeking to be a more fit version of themselves.

This philosophy that Glassman began teaching has been shown to be effective in prescription, however we have seen it work best in a one on one environment. The functional movements that Glassman refers to are effective, challenging, and complex. For this reason we require our athletes to show both mechanics and consistency in our movements prior to adding intensity. These movements are taught best with a watchful eye and the skillset of a great coach. By putting you into a group class without personalized coaching both makes you uncomfortable but more importantly puts you at high risk of injury.

We have learned over the years that a higher coach to athlete ratio provides a better learning experience but also a safer environment. It allows the athletes to learn better movement patterns and as a by product yields a healthier community of people.

At Port CrossFit you will start out in a safe one on one environment with your coach who will know you personally and guide you each step along the way. Once you are able to showing mechanics and consistency at a high level of intensity we will move you in to group classes.

9 Things That Make Our Facility World Class

  • We have adequate floor space to serve classes with over 20 athletes with space for our apprentice coaches to facilitate one on one personal training at the same time.
  • Eighteen foot ceilings provide a spacious feeling while providing room for critical CrossFit movements, like rope climbs.
  • You can drop weights since our space is covered from wall to wall with rubber flooring as this provides a safer environment for lifting weights.
  • No one like stuffy environments when they workout, so we have two bay doors to keep the gym full of fresh air and smelling so fresh and so clean, clean. It allows for athletes to enter and exit the building in a safer manner and just looks cool too.
  • We have tons of natural light coming in the building so you never feel like your training in a dungeon.
  • We have plenty of parking so you are never getting into fights in the parking lot over a space like you do at the mall during Christmas.
  • Everyone loves to get a motivation honk while running on the sidewalk, so we got the safe sidewalks covered too.
  • We like to workout but we enjoy socializing with cool people even more. We get together a lot to hangout, so when you join you get a bunch of friends for free.
  • Stretching and relaxing is also an important aspect of the gym, so we hold other classes to get our athletes limber, since flexibility is an athletic skill.
